Stay at Work / Return to Work

Human Resources offers a program for employees (ie. Teaching Assistants) who are injured, ill, or disabled. Their aim is to support and accommodate employees to assist them in navigating the workplace. They provide advice and resources for medical accommodations and accessibility services one may require to continue to work. They will also help provide information about sick and/or medical leave.
